Bridge Deck Preservation Work on I-90 and US 195 Begins this Week in Eastern Washington

SPOKANE – Travelers who plan on using Interstate 90 and US 195 until the end of summer should plan ahead as work to improve several bridge decks throughout the region starts this week.  

On Monday, Aug. 8, crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation will begin to rehabilitate bridge decks by patching potholes and removing and replacing concrete on fatigued sections. This work will maintain the structural integrity and extend the life of the bridges, creating a smoother ride for years to come.

What travelers can expect:

Once construction begins, travelers can expect delays with lane closures and flagging between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. as crews work to repair areas on the bridges. Drivers can also expect reduced speed limits within each work zone.

Additionally, for the concrete to properly cure, single lane closures will remain in place once the concrete is repaired. The intent is to finish each bridge in three days to limit the impact on the traveling public.

The following bridges will be affected by this project:

I-90 bridges

  • I-90 over N. Wahl
  • Lindeke Street over I-90
  • Arthur Street over I-90
  • Eastbound off-ramp to Hamilton Street over I-90
  • Thor Street over I-90
  • Salnave Road over I-90
  • Tyler Road over I-90
  • I-90 over Damon Road
  • I-90 over SR 21
  • US 395 over I-90

US 195 bridges

  • US 195 over I-90
  • US 195 over Railroad and Old US 195
  • US 195 over Pine Creek #1 and #2
